[OSGeo-Discuss] New Semantic Mediawiki based OSGeo Member Map for the OSGeo Wiki

just to explain this a bit more.

Here [1], I included the Advocate Table, Map and new directory list, 
generated from querying the strucutred data. You can see, that the 
current Advocate Page messes up the SMW structured data. Because I 
configured the model that SMW handles one page containing 
[[Category:OSGeo Advocate]] as one OSGeo Advocate entity.

Currently the Advocate Directory [2] includes the data (markup) from the 
included User: profiles, that are containing coordinates, addresses, 
email, etc..

If it is ok, I will remove the '[[Category:OSGeo Advocate]]' string from 
the current Advocate directory page [2]. This will clean the current 
mess in the SMW generated lists/tables/maps.
